Supreme Court too afraid to defend basic liberties

More freedoms down the drain ...



"The Supreme Court yesterday declined to hear an appeal by civil liberties groups seeking access to basic data about hundreds of individuals detained by the federal government after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, a decision that allows officials to continue withholding the names of most detainees, as well as other information related to their arrests, indefinitely... Although it sets no precedent, the court's decision is a significant victory for the Bush administration, which has argued that fighting an unconventional war against terrorists requires the executive branch to assert broad new authority to arrest and detain suspected members of al Qaeda - and to withhold much information about how it wields that authority so that terrorist organizations do not learn too much about the government's strategy and tactics."

Actually while we are at it lets ask them about immigration laws, affirmative action, the separation of church and state and a slew of other things the courts can change if they wanted to.
